4. #35 Makes Padres history

The Padres were still young in their existence but had an ace of a pitcher named Randy Jones. The Cy Young award winner in the summer of 1976 became the first Padre pitcher ever to start in an All-Star Game. The only other Padres to do so later were LaMarr Hoyt in 1985 and Jake Peavy back in 2007. Also, Jones became the first Padre pitcher to earn a win in an All-Star Game.

Jones stats that night showed him only allowing two hits and a walk while striking out one in three scoreless innings. The National League went on to win the game, 7-1.
